Full length standing portrait of a boy in front of a Sharjah Creek. A boy stands on a stone wall that lines Sharjah Creek, looking into the far right distance. He wears a cap on his head and a thobe (long shirt), and is holding a jug in one hand. Behind him one and two storey houses built of coral sit along the creek. Dhows (sailboats) and rowboats are moored in the shallow water of the creek.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
